Blind Item #5

The money laundering streaming network just lost $40M it won't get back because of the awful movie it gave a green light to starring the disgraced actor pedophile. It just gave him a chance to be paid to fulfill his sexual fetishes.

Netflix for streaming service

Did Scott Baio have a movie in the works there?

Netflix/Gore Vidal biopic/Kevin Spacey

plot said...

Yep, first up in my newsfeed today. Netflix lost $39 million on Spacey. Good warning to the whole industry what it could cost them hiring creeps.

Unknown said...

So what’s the problem. From what I can see everyday that’s the only reason those show business freaks make movies at all

Ophelia said...

Wow I didn't believe they'd hire back Spacey after firing him from House of Cards!

$40 million seems like an awful lot of money for anyone to spend on a fetish, especially one that is still illegal & mostly not acceptable to the public.

'United states of amnesia' the Gore Vidal doc made a few years ago with his consent and the help of his family is an incredible work of art. If you want to understand the US in the C20th upto the present, go find and watch it. If you want to be enlightened about history, politics and culture in the last century there is no better primer. Gore was mark twain, henry james and oscar wilde rolled into one.

Kris Taylor said...

His career is over

Jordan Knol said...

The blind says "just lost..." Didn't the Spacey/Vidal writeoff happen in, like, January or February?

Unknown said...

Gore Vidal?
Is this a guy who cuts hair for a living but only uses products which won't harm the environment?

shakey said...

LOL @ Unknown. You forgot about the jeans. They were *the* things to wear when I was a teenager.

If you don't look good, we don't look good!

SMDH...People not knowing who Gore Vidal was..

mooshki said...

@Kimberly The U.S. educational system is awesome.

Low Key said...

SMDH... Issa joke, guys...

O Ophelia, Scott Baio is not on the list of criminals of this sort.

Cody said...

Thanks Longtimereader for the movie recommendation!
I do not support new projects of Kevin Spacey but love his acting and past work ��

plot said...

Opinion all my own - I never liked Spacey's acting. American Beauty is an awful film (according to ME, of course, doubt away.) I didn't like Spacey in particular in that film. Watched 2 seasons of House of Cards and came to despise it's cynicism and Spacey's mawkish performance. The only film where I find him palatable is The Usual Suspects, probably because he wasn't really front and center and had to act with other people.

Then again, I don't like Orson Welles, Marlon Brando is the majority of his films or Denzel Washington.

Nutty_Flavor said...

I agree with plot about “American Beauty.” Not a good film when it was released, and it hasn’t aged well. I also don’t hear young people talking about it very often.

Do Tell said...

What about Jeffrey Jones, there was a blind about him and a new project, a day or two ago.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Ironic that we have the Gire Vidal fan club on this post, since he also supposedly had a thing for young boys.

Perhaps that’s what drew Spacey to the role.

Do Tell said...

American Beauty is a fantastic movie. I watched it again recently and every performance in it is outstanding. One of my favorites, even with Spacey in it.

"Yes, I rule!"

plot said...

I totes respect that, Do Tell, and know my tastes are a bit...eccentric.

Wanna 'nother unpopular opinion? I HATED Heath Ledger as Joker. Ready, aim, fire...

Do Tell said...

I actually agree with that. I saw Ledger in the trailer and said, "nope, nope, nope." The worst Joker casting, though, was Zach Galifianakis in the Lego Batman movie.

Thorne said...

I liked Ledger's performance.
But nobody can touch Jack Nicholson's Joker.
I know, apples and oranges, totally different style of Batman movie...

Interesting that nobody seems to care who plays Batman.

DDonna Tarttty said...

If only George Clooney had been allowed to do it right, he might've been the best Batman. Instead, he's the worst. I would pick Keaton, Bale, nobody.

When I first saw "American Beauty," I was blown away. Thought it a work of genius. Seen it twice since and It has not aged well at all.

Gore Vidal was a genius, but I suspect we know only a small part of his perversions and secret life. Let's recall that love note he penned to the man who took credit for blowing up OKC building.

plot said...

Yes, Keaton for best Batman but he had a great assist from Nicholson. Bale with his super special meth-throat voice is so fucking irritating!

J F said...

Didn't he invent a shampoo too? Damn, that guy did everything!! /s

Unknown said...

Jeans?
I think that was his brother...Levi.
😁

Brayson87 said...

Yes Keaton was the best Batman, because he understood that being a good Batman is about being a good Bruce Wayne. Batman is just the Halloween costume that Wayne throws on.

BRAD PITT said...


i remember the last 30 seconds of The Negotiator where spacey stands there as the ambulance drives away

chris sabian is such a decent man

ShallNotBeNamed said...

I think you’re thinking of Vidal Sassoon.
